Mrs B's Mixed Media Weekender At Hope & Elvis (Day One):

I was so pleased to come back to Hope & Elvis to teach my Mixed media Weekender Workshop.
It's a weekend full of exploring materials and process, about investigation and experimentation.

We all got stuck in and soon there was that happy hum of chat, creativity and cups of tea (thanks Ruth!)

It was so lovely to see lots of familiar faces and online friends...

As always, the time just flew by...

Thanks Mum for the cakes and pastries, it certainly helped to fuel the creativity!

It was amazing to see the images and layers appear...

I love the Hope & Elvis studio so much...

Here are some of the examples that I brought along to the workshop.

It made my day to see Louise Presley, here are both Louises working and chatting in the cosy corner...

This is how I love to see a studio, full of amazingly creative folk, tables laden with art materials and cakes and another day of workshop joy awaits...

Thank you so much Louise for inviting me back, huge thanks to Sam for all your hard work, thank you Magie for the delicious dinner and thanks Ruth for looking after us so well all day.

I'll tell you all about day two soon...X


  1. I can feel the creative juices flowing! what a great thing to be doing in such lovely premises.

  2. How absolutely fabulous, just how life should be. I’m smiling like a mad woman here and clapping my hands with glee

  3. It has been such a long long time since I was at Hope and Elvis, I miss it so much. I want to get back into my workshops as I feel something is missing, hopefully I will return soon. It was lovely to see it so buzzing and full of happy creative people and lovely to see both Louises too xxx


Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
